A decades-old spot that’s best known for its bowling and arcade games will close down, and a new residential development will take its place. Cambridge’s Lanes & Games, located off the Concord Turnpike, will close down after the summer bowling leagues end for the season, according to Wicked Local.

The venue, which also has a restaurant and bar, has been operating for more than 30 years, as Boston Restaurant Talk reported. The restaurant serves a range of items, including pizza, ribs, steak tips, burgers, and nachos. The Cambridge Planning Board recently approved the new development, which will consist of 320 apartment units.

This is not the first time a gaming venue has closed down to make way for a new residential development: Saugus said goodbye to Route One Miniature Golf & Batting Cages last September, and the property will eventually be home to two hotels, 255 one-bedroom apartments, and three restaurants.
